The Department for Transport is seeking views on a proposed ban on tyres aged 10 years and older from certain vehicle types, to improve road safety.

The consultation closes on the 1 September, so there’s only around 2 weeks left to have your say.

The Department for Transport is considering introducing regulations that ban the use of tyres aged 10 years and older on:

  • heavy goods vehicles
  • heavy trailers
  • buses, coaches and minibuses

The consultation follows a campaign by Frances Molloy, whose son Michael died in a coach crash caused by a 19-year-old tyre in 2012. Her work with the ‘Tyred’ campaign led to the consultation being launched.
